Dr. Dierksen and his leadership team made a celebratory stop at Northwest Elementary to congratulate Principal Kim Armstrong and her team for receiving the 2021 Challenge Award of Merit. The Confidence in Education Task Force administers the awards for the Kansas Department of Education (KSDE). The award is given to schools who have made notable progress in student achievement despite many challenges in the school population. Northwest Elementary received this recognition for their achievement and uncommon accomplishment based on Kansas math and reading assessment. Congratulations to Kim Armstrong and her staff for their hard work and dedication to our students. During the award presentation, Dr. Dierksen had the opportunity to recognize Philip Nguyen’s service of 26 plus years to the district. Way to go Northwest Tornadoes!
